I prefer to do deals with no one in the middle but perhaps attorneys to put together the purchase and sale agreement. Some people prefer representation. They feel it shields them (Which it really doesn't) or they dont have time to do it themselves. I don't see the value with brokers getting 10%. I can do a little work on my own. I also am not a fan of real estate agents..but they only take 5% or less and probably work harder than boat brokers as a whole.
